New unreleased Ben studio track - HERE!
« on: June 04, 2004, 06:55:57 AM »
Well, for those who don't read the little "Today's Birthdays" thingy at the bottom of the index, it's my (and Waldo's) birthday today!

To celebrate, I've unearthed a little something special for you all - a 30 second clip of a previously unreleased (and unheard!) Ben studio track entitled "Hideaki's Song".

Ben Folds - HIDEAKI'S SONG.mp3

As far as I can tell, it's a sort-of follow up to Hiro's Song, though it might not be following the same characters. The only info I could find were on pages in Japanese (here and here). I had someone who knew Japanese go over it, but they didn't really understand what it was on about either!

So enjoy, post your thoughts, and Happy Birthday to me!

Thanks for the download and happy birthday, Andy! The song wasn't anything too great, though, imo. Almost sounded like he was making it up as he went.

Got to say... I think it was unreleased for a reason.  Ben's quality control is pretty good.  Where did this come from?

Hmm, wish I could hear the rest.  Snippets bother me.  They always leave me feeling uneasy and unfulfilled.  I'm not going to be able to concentrate on anything today now.  And I won't be able to sleep either.  Oh, the life of a neurotic.

And, Andy, I'm such a jerk.  I always forget your birthday.  Watch your email.  I'll send you a surprise.

I know what you mean about little snippets, you always want to know what the rest of the song is like...but I guess that's the point...

I'm 16 in 5 days wooo! (that's my link to birthdays), but i also have half of my History GCSE in 5 days :(, i want an A* adn they only give them to the top 5% in the country! That sucks!

My nurse, my comedian, my intepreter
My Hideaki... Hideaki
